How I (More Than) Doubled My Hair Growth

I more than doubled the rate of my hair growth.

It sounds a bit unbelievable. I can hardly believe it myself! But I want to explain to you exactly what I did to get my hair growth into the swing. No chemicals, no expensive medications, just a few nourishing techniques I learned about over the past couple months, and somehow my hair started growing at least twice as fast as it was before.

Even though I have a lot of hair, my hair has never, EVER been the type to grow thick or super fast. (That’s why this is such a surprise to me, honestly.) I even went through a period of major hair loss over a year ago, after a difficult surgery recovery. You can read about how I stopped my hair loss and started regrowth here.

Here’s what surprised me even more – I thought I had regrown all the hair that I had lost, but apparently I hadn’t. Because when I started these techniques and supplements, all of a sudden I was looking at a large growth of fuzzy fringe all around my scalp that wasn’t there before. My only conclusion is that my hair hadn’t fully regrown.

I don’t know what brought it all on, for me to start aggressively trying to grow my hair. Perhaps boredom. Back before I had my surgery, I was trying to get my hair to grow out and not having much luck. Then, when I lost half my hair, I sort of freaked out and went and chopped it all off into a short bob. It was cute, I guess, but several months ago, I just decided I wanted to grow my hair long again. Using all sorts of tricks I had learned.

Please hear me – this is just what I did to grow my hair quickly. And please, please, please, don’t feel pressured to have to try all these things all at once. It’s like a buffet – just pick a few that work for you!

When I get started on something I kind of get a little obsessive about it. I don’t know why; it’s just the way I’ve always been. (Usually, my interest fizzles just as quickly. ๐Ÿ™‚ ) You don’t have to obsess like I did, but if you have that type of personality, hey friend! We are two peas in a pod. ๐Ÿ™‚ You might like this post.

Note: This post has been my most popular post and I’m updating some techniques and recommendations that I have learned since its first publishing, to make it even more helpful to you.ร‚ 

Now I’ll quit babbling and get started with the tips!

How I (More Than) Doubled My Hair Growth a.k.a. how to grow hair faster!

1. I Quit Shampoo.

Sigh. Yeah, you heard me. It all started when I read this post on going “no-poo” (as in, no “sham”poo) by Ashlee from The Crunchy Moose. I gazed at her beautiful photos and read about how her hair started growing faster when she went no-poo. For years now I had heard about no-poo, and kinda thought it was a little nuts. I liked my shampoo, conditioner, leave-in heat protectant, hairspray, gel, and mousse, thankyouverymuch.

When we were on the GAPS diet, the GAPS book had encouraged dropping toxic products from our regimen, and I just couldn’t. I wanted no part of it. (Honestly, the GAPS diet was hard enough for me without having to think about finding non-toxic alternatives. I’m sure it would have sent me right over the edge at the time.)

But, reading Ashlee’s post got me thinking. Why not? Buy a little bit of high-quality baking soda (the only kind of baking soda you should use on your hair), and use a little vinegar, add my favorite essential oils, clean all the buildup off my hair and scalp, and be pleasantly surprised at the freedom I feel by using a more natural regimen. I haven’t used shampoo since the end of August and I LOVE IT. My hair has never looked this good, ever. I will write more about my method in the coming weeks, but I’m super happy about it.

If you’re considering walking into the no-poo world, be prepared to read and learn a lot. Don’t feel overwhelmed. The great news about quitting commercial shampoo/products is that there are so many methods and techniques for any and all types of hair. Once you play around with some, you’ll find what works best for your hair and can tweak it as often as you want or need to. The possibilities are truly endless.

You can read tons of posts about natural hair care in my Ultimate Natural Hair Care Directory, if you are considering this route. Here are my top ten tips for going no-poo. Check out – an entire site dedicated to all things natural hair and body care! You can also search for no-poo Facebook groups, subreddits, and other online forums. You will find a wealth of information and helpful people who are happy to assist you in finding what works best for you.

2. Goat’s milk.

Mmm, right? Haha. This option will not be available to everyone, but I am simply telling you what I did and in the order that I did it. Please understand, the thought of goat’s milk would send me into a gagging fit, until I tasted the fresh, sweet taste of raw goat’s milk. It is nothing like the awful, musky flavor of canned goat’s milk you see at the store. It’s never been heated, all the enzymes are intact, and it is probably my favorite “food” right now.

When I first started drinking it, I could not stop! I think my body was craving the highly available calcium, potassium, and other vitamins and nutrients in the milk and for weeks I would probably drink more milk than I ate food. I was probably making up for a whole lifetime spent hating milk and never drinking it, not even when I was pregnant and nursing four children. (You can read more about how amazing raw goats milk is here.)

I noticed my nails growing in thicker and I assumed my hair was doing better as well, although I had no way to measure it. But ultimately, I know it was very beneficial for my hair.

3. The Inversion Method. (Major Game-Changer!)

Friends, this here was aร‚ game-changer for me. As much as going no-poo and drinking raw goat’s milk did for me, the big visible difference in hair growth began when I started doing the Inversion Method once a month.

What’s the Inversion Method, you say? I’ll tell you all about it, because I had never heard of it until recently.

The Inversion Method:

For one week per month, once a day, you wet your fingertipsร‚ with some hair-appropriate oil, flip your head over and give your scalp a good 5-minute massage with your fingertips. Like, a really good massage. (Sounds horrible, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) The massage paired with your head being upside down MAJORLY increases blood flow to the scalp and triggers an increase in hair growth. Plus, it feels stinkin’ amazing. And if you use oils that contribute to hair growth, you’re really knocking it out of the park!

But you only do this for one week during each month. i.e. one week on, three weeks off. If you were to do it all the time, your scalp would quickly become accustomed to this treatment and would eventually slow the hair growth, according to everything I’ve watched/read. It’s the starting and stopping that keeps your scalp guessing. . . I guess. I don’t know the science behind it, really, but I’ve personally seen enough to know it works.

Here’s the youtube video I watched about The Inversion Method – beware, this gal has killer hair. Try not to be jealous. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also, there is some language – it’s bleeped out.

She says your hair will grow up to 4 inches in a week – I didn’t see that much growth but I know this treatment worked for increasing my hair growth. She mentions some type of oil treatment. I just went ahead and made up my own from the oils I had around the house. You can read about that here. I think, honestly, the oils are optional but I did use them and I did experience major growth, so keep that in mind. (The second month I did the inversion method, I didn’t use any oils and I still experienced visible hair growth.)

If you look closely at my hairline, you can see the crazy fringe I was sporting – all new hair growth.

4. Biotin

Here, this one’s for everybody. Biotin. I started taking Biotin more recently. Pairing this supplement with all the other hair growth techniques makes it a little more difficult for me to discernร‚ the difference, but since I’ve been taking the biotin, my nails have become rock hard, even harder than they were when I was drinking tons of goats milk. I know it’s doing something, and the capsules are tiny and easy to take. Win!

Biotin’s easy. Here’s the one I bought, and am happy with. If you’re not already getting your B-complex vitamins, here’s a fantastic methylated B-vitamin that I use and love.

5. Grass-Fed Gelatin.

This one is an easy one to add as well. Grass-fed gelatin. Meaning the gelatin that comes from cows that graze on grass instead of grain, which is more natural and equates to a more healthy and nourishing cow.

Gelatin is a high-quality protein that is very healing to your gut lining and very nourishing to your whole body, including your hair, skin and nails. It facilitates the production of collagen in your skin, which can’t absorb collagen from topical application. You might have heard of collagen powder, this is gelatin that has been processed to be easier to add to food and drinks.

So I started adding 1 tablespoon to my morning coffee and tea. I stirร‚ it with an ounce or two of cool water and let it “bloom” (absorb the water) and then add my coffee or tea and blend with coconut oil and butter. Mmm. If you add a lot of gelatin you can sort of taste it, but if you add less there will be less of a taste. The taste doesn’t bother me as I am used to it and I can definitely deal with it in order to get healthier hair/skin/nails/body.

This is the grass-fed gelatin I buy – This is actually collagen powder, not gelatin powder. I buy it in bulk, it’s much cheaper that way. I love it.

6. Fish Oil – Specifically, Cod Liver Oil

This is a newer addition that I have since learned about. The benefits of fish oil are much too extensive to write about here, and beyond my scope. However, one of the unexpected benefits is that it can actually contribute to increased hair growth and health.

The problem is, many of the supplements you see in store and online are cheap substitutes. It’s been discovered that some companies will strip the naturally-occurring vitamins A &D and substitute them with synthetic versions. If you’re going to supplement cod liver oil, make sure you find a reputable company and that the vitamins are naturally-occurring and the fish oil is unadulterated.

This is my recommendation.

Well, there you have it.

I could see the hair growth within a few weeks, because my hair started to get this weird small wave all around my hairline. The next time I did the inversion method, I got another small wave to my hair. My hair is straight as a board, so the waves are interesting; they are a sign of rapid hair growth. If I can get a decent pic of the waves, I’ll add them to the post sometime.

Another thing you can do to check for hair growth is to part your hair and flatten each side with your hands. Look in between the part – if there are tiny hairs sticking up, that’s new hair growth!

New fringe growth from following these tips

You might be wondering about why I chose to take a picture of my hairline rather than the ends of my hair. Valid question! But I did end up trimming about half an inch off the ends of my hair to have a healthier head of hair to work with, so the rate of growth is best seen by looking at my hairline, since I didn’t trim that. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can see the hairs sticking out. They are about 2 inches long and maybe even longer. (I should have measured at the time.)

You see, my hair normally grows *maybe* 1/2 inch a month. Maybe. That’s a generous guess. But this is over two inches in the course of 5 weeks. I was amazed by this and wanted to share it with you!

So that’s how I grew my hair faster, and increased the number of hairs growing on my scalp. Do you think you’ll try any of these methods? If you do, report back to me and let me know how it goes for you! I wish you the very best in hair growth, I know it’s a long journey, but hopefully these tips will quicken that journey for you!

Think hair-growing thoughts!



P.S. Here’s a pic from Feb. 15 after a beer rinse. I’m so happy that my hair has finally grown to the length I wanted it for so long.

  1. I can’t wait to the inversion method! I never heard of that before and it makes a lot of sense to me. The gelatin definitely works, too – I’ve been a lot more faithful with gelatin during the last 2 months (taking 2 tablespoons every single day) and my hair is undeniably a lot thicker because of it. Thanks for sharing your experience about how to grow hair faster – can’t wait to try some of these other methods ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Kelly! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for your comment! So awesome that the gelatin is working for you – and I’m glad to hear that your hair is thicker, as I have always wanted thicker hair. Looking forward to that. Can’t wait to hear how the inversion method works for you!! <3

  2. I have been trying to get my hair to grow out as well. I experienced a ton of hair loss struggling to get my thyroid levels balanced. I have been steadily using grass fed gelatin due to it’s other amazing health benefits and started supplementing with biotin about 3 months ago. I also drink raw grass-fed cows milk on occasion but may just up it to once a day after hearing your experience with the goats milk. I also had never heard of the inversion method. I’m starting this first thing next week. GREAT post! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have always hypothesized that the reason your hair seems to grow faster after a haircut is the vigorous “massage” by the hairdresser when getting your hair washed…sounds similar to the inversion method ๐Ÿ™‚ Interesting read!

  4. Wow, this is really interesting. I also dealt with some hair loss when taking a medication for migraines last year, and was told to try Men’s Rogaine. I did it for a little while but hated the idea of it, so I switched to taking Biotin. I love that your suggestions are all natural and even simple. I’m going to try some of these out!

  5. This post along with “how I stopped my hair loss and started regrowth” have been a godsend! I’m in my early twenties and used to have long thick hair until I started with the most treacherous birth control pill every prescribed (Junel, aka Loestrin). This particular type is one of the most androgenic available, which is TERRIBLE for your hair. I didn’t even realize how much hair I was losing until it was too late and I had lost about half of it, if not more. Of course, that sent me into a beauty crisis and I thought I was going to go completely bald and the tears came, etc. etc.
    I’ve since switched pills and am starting to feel hopeful again about my hair growth. I’m using most of the tips you’ve suggested along with castor oil massages and I think it’s finally working. Thanks so much for all the research you’ve done and I wish you all the best with your hair journey.

    • Aya, thanks so much for your comment!! I’m so sorry to hear about your hair loss. I remember the crying and the helpless feeling!! ๐Ÿ™ At least you figured out the cause of the problem! I’m so hopeful for you – keep up what you’re doing! <3

  6. I went through a period of high stress a few years ago and my hair literally went from too thick to almost thin. I literally lost half my hair and it was horrible. Thank you for these tips. I look forward to trying some of these to help accelerate my hair regrowth ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hi, I definitively want to try the inversion method. I have had problems with hair-fall, and I think it’s thyroid related. I started drinking almond milk with 3 tsp diatomaceous earth (food grade) a day and it really helped my hair to grow faster, but more than anything, I noticed less hair-fall in the shower. I tried hanging upside down before and massaging my scalp, but I didn’t know it was only supposed to be done a week out of the month. Thanks for the information! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Tracy – so sorry to hear about your hair loss. I know how that feels!!! I’m so glad the DE helped you – that helped me tremendously as well. I’d love to hear back from you after you try the inversion method! <3

  8. I have been told constantly especially by hair dressers that the inversion method does not work. I had hip length hair until mid-December, I cut it and it was shoulder length. I regretted it and have been trying to find ways to hide my hair including using a wig. Plus when my hair is short, it isn’t straight; it curls outwards and it’s really irritating. The first week of the first month, I only massaged my scalp for 5 minutes, 7 days straight. I also take fish oil, multivitamin and biotin. This month, I am going to try it with castor oil and massage my scalp. I also get about 0.5 in. of hair growth a month. It’s been a month and two week and it looks as if my hair grew more than an inch. I also skipped January and wish I didn’t.

    I judge the length based on my shoulder tattoo. My hair was exactly above the shoulder and now it’s half past my tattoo. It’ll probably take a few more months of trial to see if it actually works, but I have to say that it seemed to have work for me based the pictures I took. I can also tie a pony tail. now. Maybe I’m just seeing what I want to see, but my hair was nowhere near touching my tattoo before and now it does. I guess it depends on the person whether or not this works, but this method has made me VERY happy and I hope to stick with it until I reach waist length!

    • That is funny, Anna! I wonder why hairdressers would say that it doesn’t work? Like you, it has definitely worked wonders for me, and I get bummed if I miss a month, too! <3

  9. I will try this! Did you know you skipped number 5? Anyway, I was already on Biotin and doong the Inversion Method, but with no oils. That Raw Goat Milk sounds good! I really want my hair and nails to grow long and fast, so of you have any other tips (that dont involve oils) please email me. Thanks!!

  10. thank you for these posts on hair growth! I lost a lot of hair from dealing with Lyme disease for over six years and then just when I had some back and grew it long again, we got married and moved into an apartment with hard water and I lost a bunch of hair again ๐Ÿ™ I’m looking for ways to try to grow it back and thicken my fine thin hair, and I love these natural options. Do you have an update on how these things have worked for you in the last six months since your original posts? Are you still doing all of those things (protein, silica, no poo, inversion method, biotin, gelatin, etc.) or have you only continued some of them (or any?) for maintenance? I’d love to hear how this has worked for you long term. Thanks again!

    • Hi Kristi! I guess I missed this comment?! Sorry about that. Yes, I am still doing some of these things, it varies month to month. I am still experiencing rapid hair growth! woohoo!! I have a feeling I will be keeping these things up. I am actually doing a webinar later this month about hair care with essential oils, and I’ll give a more thorough update there. Stay tuned!! <3

  11. Will the inversion method work? I got a pixie haircut I had to cut of all my long hair and I want to grow it back as soon as possible I’m also 15 if that helps but will this work? I don’t wonna try this and get my hopes up and it doesn’t work

    • Hi Talia! I understand about wanting to grow your hair back fast. The only way you’ll know if it works for you is if you try it! I tried it and it worked for me, as well as many others who have written me and said it worked. Go ahead, it doesn’t hurt to try! <3

  12. Hi,
    I found your piece really interesting. I’m currently experiencing hair loss and it’s horrible!! I’ve been checked by the doctor and there’s no physical reason. But over the past few months I’ve been through a traumatic break up (which involved moving countries and two weeks later being sent packing) and then a month after moving to teach in rural Cambodia!!!
    So my body has been through a lot of stress.
    I’m just wondering how long it will keep coming out? Luckily I started with very thick hair!!
    I can’t wait to start the inversion technique right now ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks again!!!

    • Hi Kristy! So sorry to hear about your stressful time. ๐Ÿ™ Yes, you’re right, you are lucky you started out with thick hair! Give the inversion method a try for a month or two and see what happens. I hope it helps you! <3

  13. I am in desperate need of growing my hair out I got a pixie cut in Feb and it grown an inch since. I’m so embarrassed by my hair:'(

  14. Great post! Thanks for sharing your tips – I have very temperamental hair with an irregular growth cycle. My mum has female patterm hair loss, and my dad has very thick hair so the result is…I have very thick strands of hair but not too much off it. If I don't take activate steps to stimulate the hair follicles, I can go a few months with no new hair growing and my hair gets very thin looking. I came across your site and I tried the Inversion method after your YouTube recommendation (Evin has got amazing hair – serious hair envy!) the day after I had a trim, to get rid of all the dry ends before my big hair growing exercise, and it grew an inch in a week. I also had new hairs and a fuzzy little fringe around my hairline. I will be doing it again in 3 weeks, but in the meantime I've found eating food rich in Biotin (eggs, almonds, sweet potato) and using Coconut Oil as a hair mask have really worked. My hair feels stronger and shinier.

    I am yet to try goat's milk or the raw gelatin as they're a bit pricer over here in the UK but I found the Inversion method and plenty of Biotin, and coconut oil has worked wonders. I also swear by blasting my hair with ice cold water at the end of the shower.

    Thanks ever so much for bring Inversion to my attention! xxx

  15. Hi all

    Am male 28 and in desperate need of hair regrowth..I have trimmed my hair can i use noo poo method as i dint color my hair for more than 6 months.In the inversion method am using sesame oil with curry leaves in it will that work

    Can you please let me know where can i get baking soda of good quality that suits my hair and gelatin too so that i can start them and post my results..waiting for reply and suggestions

    • Hi Rajan, you can find it on Amazon, by clicking the link I included with the baking soda mention. I think the sesame oil will work, don’t give up! I have had a lot of success with the Hair, Skin, and Nails product recently – you can find it here. Best wishes with your hair regrowth!!

  16. For good overall health, and hair, stop eating processed garbage. Stop eating dairy, sugars, wheat, nightshade food and coffee. These kinds of garbage messes with your gut, which sends the wrong signals throughout your body. Stop looking for miracle foods, there aren’t any! Eat meat (with skin) and green veggies and small amounts of fruits and smaller amounts of nuts.

    • I see that all of the comments are useful, but I want to stress that hair color is very hard on the hair too. I switched to henna and really saw a difference in my hair.

      • Absolutely. I have been wanting to try henna, I even have a package I bought from Morrocco Method waiting for me to use. Not only does it add color, but conditions incredibly and adds unbeatable shine. Yay.

  17. Hello, I just tried the inversion method today for the first time. My scalp, neck, and back are now nicely moisturized, but my hair looks like I haven’t washed it in a month. I quit shampoo awhile ago and am using dr. bronner’s castile soap on my hair instead, but all that did was distribute the oil more evenly. So I have two questions:

    1. Is castile soap really better than a shampoo with sulfates? Am I on the right track?

    2. What do you do to keep your hair from looking amazingly dirty during the week that you use the inversion method?

    Thanks for all your hair posts!

    • Hi Jennifer! Here’s what I did while using the inversion method. First, do know that you don’t “have” to use the oil, it is just recommended. When I did the inversion method on no-poo, hereโ€™s what I did. I made a double recipe of baking soda mixture and acid mixture. Like, I made a quart size jar full of both. I used half of the baking soda mixture and massaged and washed as best as I could, and then I rinsed. Then I washed with the rest of the mixture. This got the oil out of my hair every time. Make sure not to forget the acid rinse afterward, and be sure to moisturize the ends somehow when youโ€™re out of the shower.

      Castile soap is not really recommended on its own – it is very alkaline and can hurt the scalp. If you do use a castile soap, make sure you are doing an acid rinse and moisturizing afterward. Hope that helps! <3

  18. Thank you for this GREAT post! I’ve been taking biotin, grass-fed gelatin and started doing the inversion method once a month! I have a question about going NO-POO. I’ve started doing this last week, and it’s going well. Expect now, my 3 weeks of not doing the inversion method are over. Which means I will have to start again tomorrow, but I don’t know how to combine the massaging with oil and the no-poo method? I really want to continue using these oils but my hair will be so greasy i’d have to wash it every day. So stretching my washings (which is advised in the No-Poo method) will be completely ruined again.. Do you have any advice on this? Thank you!!

    • When I did the inversion method on no-poo, here’s what I did. I made a double recipe of baking soda mixture and acid mixture. Like, I made a quart size jar full of both.

  19. Thanks for these tips! I’ll defo have to try some of them, especially the massage and biotin.

    I’m quite lucky, my hair actually grows relatively quickly, but when I’m stressed or nervous I fiddle with my hair and can sometimes pull out rather large chunks of hair, I’ve gotten bald patches before and my hair still hasn’t fully recovered from the last time it happened in 2013/2014, though it’s much better.

    I got my hair cut short (an angled Bob, longer at the front but pretty short at the back) at the end of June/ beginning of July 2015, the shortest section of my hair reached approximately 8 inches at the back of my neck and now measures approximately 15 inches or so hanging just between the beginning and middle of my shoulder blades – so my hair has grown 7 inches in around 5 months

    The issue is I wanted and still want to grow my hair long again as in 2010-2011 my hair was around 20-24 inches and while it was difficult to manage – i.e drying after washing as I don’t use a hair dryer – I could braid it and do high ponytails and things that the short length doesn’t let me do, would the biotin and massage/oil treatments work even though I have a naturally enhanced growth rate?

  20. hi,

    i`ve just got familira with inversion method and i gave it a try last week, I must say it really worked and i got about an inch of hair growth!! that`s amazing. but i have some bald spots on my head, i hope it works for them in the long run, too.

    • Awesome!!! I suggest massaging Rosemary oil into your bald spots. A friend of mine did this for her daughter and has seen thick regrowth. Contact me through the contact page if you want to hear which oils I think are the best! <3 And happy hair growing!!

  21. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don't know what to do. my hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should i do to regrow hair?

    • I tried the It Works supplements called Hair, Skin, and Nails (I signed up so I’d get the discount) and my hair grew like crazy. If you want to try that, email me at itsalovelovething at gmail dot com and I can help you because I’m a distributor. Rosemary essential oil – I can’t mention the brand I use because of increasing FDA regulations, but you can email me about that as well. Rosemary oil regenerates hair follicles. Do the inversion method faithfully every month. Be sure to eat healthy fats.

  22. I wash my hair with extracts of herbs which I have prepare myself and the results are look lala also I never skip massaging my scalp with herbs infused sesame oil every three days

  23. I love your article, I discovered it a while ago and did the inversion method. I couldn’t believe it when my hair grew an inch or so! Thank you so much for writing such a detailed post about it, I’ve always struggled with hair growth.

  24. Hello, I used to have long hair just above my waist, but I trimmed it, then cut it just at my belly button!! then I thought: ” ooohhhh! I want short hair jus bellow my shoulders..” so I CUT my hair AGAIN! it has been 3 months now, my hair is now 2 inches under my boobs. in that 3 months, I did nothing.. apart from no poo, which I only used to remove greasy hair but it didn’t work, but thinking of it now.. it REALLY helped :0 . I would have been doing no poo now but..

  25. Hi. Thanks for making this post. It was very helpful. I was wondering; are the inversion method results the EXACT same as not using oil in the inversion method? Thanks for your time in making this post.

  26. Hi.. I read your blog.. I’m so happy that thr are so many means for hair growth.. I’m 28 years old since my childhood my hair is scanty , but recently I was diagnosed with pcod and my hairbecame even worse.. I have no hope at all.. I cud see my scalp , I have consulted many dermatologists and trichologist even, but nothing worked.. I under went stem cell therapy too. I was given hair nourishment supplements , vitaliser, oils, shikkakai paste as well.. At the time of medication I witnessed few baby hair.. but just after treatment it stopped.. now I’m so worried if I could grow my hair.. Please help me out.. It just hinders my confidence to the core .

    • You’ll have to look around on the internet for “no poo hair washes”. There are so many different ways to wash hair, and so many different hair types. It will be a process, but if you don’t give up, you’ll find what works for you! <3

  27. I have been trying to get my hair to grow out as well. I experienced a ton of hair loss struggling to get my thyroid levels balanced. I have been steadily using grass fed gelatin due to itโ€™s other amazing health benefits and started supplementing with biotin about 3 months ago. I also drink raw grass-fed cows milk on occasion but may just up it to once a day after hearing your experience with the goats milk. I also had never heard of the inversion method. Iโ€™m starting this first thing next week. GREAT post! Thanks for sharing!

  28. Hi Danielle! I really love this post about how you doubled your hair growth! I keep coming back to it to see if could do something else or if I forget something. In the past I’ve tried out gelatin and it worked but got a bit expensive over time, so I stopped buying it for a while. Biotin is something I haven’t tried out yet, because I’m afraid of getting bad skin as some people get bad skin from it.
    I did see some results with the inversion method in the past and am now testing it out with actual proof, I’ve started a blog about hair care and other things.
    Since I had it bleached in the past I had to cut it very short and have been really seeking out how to improve my growth rate in the best possible way! I do not drink goat’s milk, since I tried it one time and it just tasted kind of.. not so nice. Here in the Netherlands we don’t have canned goat’s milk but just in a carton like milk, maybe I’d have to try another brand but I’m a little bit hesitant!

    Thank you for this post and information, I really enjoyed reading it!

  29. Such great tips, thanks so much for sharing! I definitely try to use less and less shampoo as I can and more and more natural or organic products. Not just on my hair but also for hydrating my skin. I will definitely try to link back to you in one of my articles on hair growth on my blog! Thanks again for sharing and wishing you continued success ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Please check about hair growing subliminals too.. Idk if u ll see this comment.. And yes, Thank you for this post ๐Ÿ™‚ โค๏ธ

  31. Hi Danielle,I have to say really useful post! I tried the Inversion Method and it really worked, my hair looks really good now thanks to you! xoxo

  32. The inversion method for hair growth actually works. I’ve tried it and the outcome was incredible! I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to have longer hair or dealing with hair loss.

  33. I have the habit of struggling my hardest to maintain my youthful appearance as I get older. I was on an off with the collagen and now, I take it seriously as if it were my vitamin or medicine I have to take every day. I use Great Lakes Collagen as well as Rejuvicare liquid collagen. I don’t use commercial cheap shampoos. The Shampoo and Conditioner I liked the most is Giovanni Eco Chic Tea Tree Triple Treat. It’s like essential oils were added in the shampoo so that I don’t have to. I also do the inversion method and I usually don’t lengthen 4 inches in a week, I was able to get to 4 inches in 4 months going from mid back to mid waist from July to November 2017. I take a handful of vitamins along with biotin and Viviscal. Fabulous50s recommended Niacin in the video about maintaining the hairs thickness when you’re over 50. I also eat a low carb keto diet.

  34. Hello Daniell,

    Thnks for you inversion methods, I just wanna say wow! I have been suffering from hair loss a few months and I can’t make it stop. Tried so many products and no satisfying result. For these reasons I was kinda depressed and stop seeking reliefs. But your inversion methods seem interesting to me and I can’t wait to try this. I hope it will work on me.

  35. Really interesting post and tips. I’m surprised about going no-poo (maybe I should try it) but I love your suggestion about scalp massage! Anyway I love natural oils and solutions… Thank you for these tips. ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Hi Danielle,

    How are you? I have been wanting to try the inversion method for awhile now but I am getting pretty serious now. I do use some of the oils you mentioned but was very surprised with the gelatin. The link provided for the article on gelatin is not current as I didn’t see it when I clicked on it. Well, the gelatin link is for beef but I noticed regular on Amazon which is unflavored. Do you know if the regular unflavored will work just as well? You mentioned you put the beef in coffee or tea but wouldn’t that taste weird? I want to use the gelatin but idk about the beef kind but if that’s what it takes I’ll give it a try. Perhaps I will order both and test them out. I look forward to trying this as I have tried other methods to no avail. I also FAITHFULLY take biotin everyday & I LOVE it. I noticed no more breakage but not any growth or thickness. Same length & very thin hair. At least I stopped the breakage but I want my thickness & length back. I really enjoyed reading your blog on this topic. Are you still doing this or only once in awhile? Also, how long do you do the inversion method? My hair won’t stop growing or start falling out or getting thin after not continuing the inversion method will it? Well, I will let you know my progress as I have to buy some of the other items needed. Take care.

    • Hi Destiny,
      I’m great, thank you for asking, that’s so sweet of you. The gelatin is a tasteless powder – when I mix it into coffee or hot tea I can really not taste much of a difference. Maybe a slight texture difference. It won’t taste beefy at all, I promise! Make sure you try the collagen version – . I highly encourage you to try the inversion method! It couldn’t hurt, and only help. No, your hair won’t begin to fall out or get thin if you stop it. Try it for one full week out of each month for the next several months. All that scalp stimulation really helps. <3 Let me know if you have any more questions.

  37. For Vegan substitute , Go for leagums and pulses ( boiled form) , flaxseed and walnut specially

    Dont forget almond ( the real hair savior )

    Start taking Fenugreek in water or tea form atleast thrice a week

    Green tea will create miracles

    Replace milk with curd ( geek format if possible)

    Watch out your protein intake ( minimum 40 gm for females are necessary)

    Avoid dairy fat(milk form) and junk food

  38. Hi Danielle! Thank you for this delightful blog, this is my first time to hear about this invention method of yours, I will try this since its a once a week method, so it’s not a hassle for me. I’m wondering I have a thin hair already can it be possible to make it thicker? I mean every strand of my hair? I also follow this article’s guide so far it’s working with me here it is, perhaps if I combine this two idea my hair will grow more healthy (hoping, crossed finger), thank you.

  39. Hi! Stumbled across this blog. Sharing I got recommended a postpartum hair vitamin that has biotin , collagen, b12, folate , vitamin a, c, I forget what else but lots of minerals too and its been really helping with regrowth and shedding. I’m no longer postpartum but I take it like a hair vitamin and its like a secret hack. I order at – they tend to sell out but its really good.
